All-Ohio applications will close on October 22 at 11:59pm
There is still time to audition/apply for the 2018 All-Ohio Show Letters to Sala. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to shine at state conference.
CASTING MINIMUM: 12 women, 4 men (doubling, flexible casting) All roles will be equally considered for non-traditional casting.
SYNOPSIS: In October 1940, Sala Garncarz was sixteen, the daughter of a rabbi and teacher and the youngest of eleven children in a poor family living in Sosnowiec, Poland, close to the German border. When her older sister Raizel was ordered to report to a Nazi forced labor camp, Sala volunteered to take her place. Neither she nor her family suspected that six weeks of required labor would stretch to almost five years of slavery. Through letters from family and friends that she managed to hide and keep safe, Letters to Sala tells the story of one young woman’s experiences in the most inhumane and unimaginable of situations. -NY Public Library
ACTOR AUDITIONS & TECHNICAL APPLICATIONS: There is a $15 fee to apply. If cast, actors and technicians will pay a $100 participation fee ($50 will go towards hotel costs in Dayton, new expense for 2018).
ACTORS: Submit a resume and a 1-minute dramatic monologue. The director is looking for depth and vulnerability as opposed to major shifts in character. An honest, straight forward piece would be best. If actors speak German or have taken a German class, they will have the opportunity to list that on GetAcceptd. Actors who speak German should give a brief display of this at the end of the monologue. Please note speaking German is not a requirement for being cast.
TECHNICIANS: will submit a resume and examples of their work including, but not limited to, photos, drawings, plots, prompt scripts, publicity files, etc. Select technicians will have callback interviews with the technical director on the callback date.
While no more than six actors and six technicians will be cast from any one troupe, there are no limits on how many students are able to submit videos and apply. Applicants must be inducted thespians as of 10/22/17, and troupe must attend State Conference.
